He causes grass to grow for the livestock and [provides] crops for man to cultivate, producing food from the earth,
wine that makes man's heart glad-- making his face shine with oil-- and bread that sustains man's heart.
The trees of the LORD flourish, the cedars of Lebanon that He planted.
There the birds make their nests; the stork makes its home in the pine trees.
The high mountains are for the wild goats; the cliffs are a refuge for hyraxes.
He made the moon to mark the seasons; the sun knows when to set.
You bring darkness, and it becomes night, when all the forest animals stir.
The young lions roar for their prey and seek their food from God.
The sun rises; they go back and lie down in their dens.
Man goes out to his work and to his labor until evening.
How countless are Your works, LORD! In wisdom You have made them all; the earth is full of Your creatures.
Here is the sea, vast and wide, teeming with creatures beyond number-- living things both large and small.
There the ships move about, and Leviathan, which You formed to play there.
All of them wait for You to give them their food at the right time.
When You give it to them, they gather it; when You open Your hand, they are satisfied with good things.
When You hide Your face, they are terrified; when You take away their breath, they die and return to the dust.
When You send Your breath, they are created, and You renew the face of the earth.
May the glory of the LORD endure forever; may the LORD rejoice in His works.
He looks at the earth, and it trembles; He touches the mountains, and they pour out smoke.
I will sing to the LORD all my life; I will sing praise to my God while I live.
May my meditation be pleasing to Him; I will rejoice in the LORD.
May sinners vanish from the earth and the wicked be no more. My soul, praise the LORD! Hallelujah!
